Somehow I have missplaced the load suggestions you all have given in the past for loads using the high B.C. Hornady 53 grain V-Max bullets.
I am new to these bullets myself.
Its the winter "reloading" season here in SW Montana and I have a 223 Varminter that I think NEEDS to shoot this bullet.
My Rifle (Remington 700 SPS-V) has a 26" barrel and a Leupold 6.5x20 variable scope on it.
I picked this Rifle up a while back and it has only shot Berger 50 grainers to date.
These Bergers are accurate bullets, but are PRICEY, and the Hornady has a higher B.C (.290).
And I think the Prairie Dogs and Ground Squirrels should really plop when hit with these V-Max bullets - even when these Varmints are "way out there".
Any load suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

VG I'd say 25.5 gr of Benchmark should get you real close.

If you won't help, I suggest you have the grace to step back and let some one in who will....

I don't load the 53 Hornady Vmax so I am glad to allow the question to stand for another to answer.

Insults are not answers.

I don't believe I have ever referred to you as "ingturdwe" but I like the osund of it AND the reference to yourself though!

And as far as rattlesnakes go you do what your turdlike mind dictates - I personally kill them all when they are within "crawling distance" of homes that may have children in them (4-5 miles or so).
Unlike yourself there, turdwe, I have been bitten by a Rattlesnake and at 6' 3" and 260 pounds I personally know that a child would have a life-threatening, miserably painful and prolonged situation if bitten by a Rattlesnake!
Like I said, you go ahead and do what ever your turdlike brain mandates but don't try to influence those that know better than you - and that includes not just me but a LOT of people.
And, you just keep telling your turdy self that YOU are a merry turd - thats always good for a laugh.
And I now publicly call you out turdlike ingwe - produce the post where I can be quoted as saying "I figure each one killed saves the life of at least one child..."!
You are now proven not only a turd, but a liar and an exaggerator - and that is a sad condition that you have attained.
Grow up man before its to late.
